That make-it-pretty gene? The French have it too. Let things get old. Honor them. Live with them. Stack them. Layer them. Let them be. The hilltop town of Vézelay is the proof.
What is it?The Daily Cure for me is trying to smell taste touch—really experience— something, each day, that reminds me that I'm alive and, mostly, happy to be here. A small moment that should go a long way, at least in theory.

THANK YOU for walking us down the street I would love to stop and go inside and feel the whole adventure. But this works!
I totally agree, the French and the Italian have that special gene. I love the patina look, I used to try to imitate it in my pottery.
What a beautiful collection of photos! I love these old things.
